A lady, Ugochukwu Nwosu, 25, has been bathed with acid by a man on a motorcycle at Ilasa area of Lagos. Nwosu, who is affected on the face, neck and other parts, is currently admitted to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital in Idi-Araba, Surulere Lagos.
“On Thursday, I had closed from Computer Village where I work. Around 8pm, when I reached Ilasa bus stop, I dropped off the bus.
“I was about to cross to the other side of the road when a man dropped from a motorcycle and poured something on me. He immediately fled on the motorcycle. People came to my rescue and took me to the hospital”, said Nwosu.
Nwosu said she suspected a woman, whose husband proposed marriage to her. Nwosu said the woman had threatened her over her intimacy with the husband, identified as Chidi. She claimed a complaint was lodged to the police at Itire Police Station.
Dolapo Badmos, spokesperson for Lagos Police Command, dispelled insinuation of a cover-up following the suspected Mrs. Chidi’s arrest and subsequent release. She said investigation was continuing in the case.
